An anonymous reader writes “UC Santa Cruz emeritus professor David Cope’s software, nicknamed Emmy, creates beautiful original music. So why are people so angry about that? From the article: ‘Cope attracted praise from musicians and computer scientists, but his creation raised troubling questions: If a machine could write a Mozart sonata every bit as good as the originals, then what was so special about Mozart? And was there really any soul behind the great works, or were Beethoven and his ilk just clever mathematical manipulators of notes?’”
